Educational Foundation

The aviation industry, like most others, is subject to the effects of economic downturns and other external factors influencing air travel. Unforeseen health issues can also drastically change pilot career plans. Education is always a worthwhile investment and additional degrees offer more stability during turbulent times or forced career changes.

Career Progression

Be prepared for career advancement opportunities when they arise. Your current career plan may not require a bachelor degree, but years ahead you may want to pursue other, higher-paying opportunities at your present company or at others. Set yourself apart from the competition and become the preferred candidate.


There is no better time than now. Keep pursuing your education while you are still in "student mode". As life progresses, an increasing number of important things will require your attention such as family and a busy job. In addition, transfer credits can lose their value over time and degree requirements sometimes change.

Financial Aid

If you received financial aid for your degree at Cypress, continuing your education will defer your student loan repayments until you complete the degree and are flying professionally at an airline or other pilot job. At that point, you are in a much better financial position.
